April 1st Saved

Rumour has it that consideration was given to cancelling April 1st this year. It was felt in some quarters that the serious situation in the country meant that it was inappropriate to encourage April Foolery. The proposal was to replace April 1st with March 32nd, followed by April 2nd.

However we are told that the Chief Medical Officer was of the opinion that a certain amount of gentle humour in good taste was allowable and could even be beneficial.

A spokesperson for the Chief Scientific Advisor said that the idea was a non-starter anyway as there was not enough time to change hundreds of software systems to cope with the date March 32nd.
